Teacher Appraisal and Observation: vital information
From September 2012 Performance Management is being rebranded as Appraisal, and schools will begin to operate new policies. Government changes to the regulations surrounding these issues mean that these new policies could be extremely damaging to teachers and to education.
As part of our joint campaign to protect teachers and defend education, the NUT and NASUWT have agreed a joint observation protocol and appraisal checklist, which if implemented in your school, would offer significant protections.
We want our members and reps in all schools in England and Wales to work together to have these policies implemented.
These documents, together with advice about how to use them can be found here and are being mailed to your school rep.
